Responding to public outcries over privacy issues with its
launch of Google Buzz, Google apologized and sought to reassure
Americans it would keep information confidential on social security
numbers and Gonorrhea test results and the 1,237,948 people who take
daily medication for anxiety. From the Onion.

"Whether you're Michael Paulson who lives at 3425
Longview Terrace and makes $86,400 a year, or Jessica Goldblatt from
Lynnwood, WA, who already has well-established trust issues, we at
Google would just like to say how very, truly sorry we are."

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
